About five years ago on coronation night my cousin won homecoming queen. Everyone was there supporting her, everyone except my grandma. My mom got a little worrieed when she didn’t show up because she had told her earlier that day that she was having trouble breathing. When we got home my mom decided to call her and tell her the good news and no one answered. She called again, nothing. About ten minutes later my grandma called my mom back and said that she was still struggling to breath. My mom and dad decided to drive over to her house to make sure she was alright, and when they got there she was lying in her living room, not breathing.
